Flowers, Flowers everywhere!

Do you ever buy fresh flowers?  I actually don't.  First because they don't typically sell them at Aldi and second because I just usually don't think about it.  However, I do LOVE fresh flowers.  My aunt Leslie almost always has some sort of arrangement in her kitchen and they are always so inviting and refreshing!

My friend Brooke invited me to a Fresh Flower Arrangement class this week at JL Designs in Monroe and it was so great!  I always thought that you just bought the bouquet, found a vase that wouldn't tip over from the weight of the flowers then stick the flowers in the top.  Well, was I ever wrong!  Jeff taught us to create 2 different arrangements from the ground up.

I really enjoyed the atmosphere of the flower shop, old brick walls, galvanized tables and flowers galore!  Most of all it was so fun to spend time with one of my dearest friends just laughing, making fun of our own arrangements and sharing some much needed junk food after class was over!

These are our starter flowers for the first arrangement.  I seriously like these tables!

 Brooke didn't tell me that she was a pro at this!

all done with the first!  I like how we made the rose the "focal" point of this arrangement.

The next one is my favorite.  It's so clean and simple.  Plus who doesn't like hydrangeas?

 All done!  So pretty and elegant!  Who knew that these stick things could make this arrangement

What a great experience!  Thankful that Brooke invited me, now I've got to find a way to get my hands on some more fresh flowers!


  1. How fun! Your arrangements turned out beautifully! If you hear of them having another class soon, would you let me know? I'd love to participate and Monroe isn't far from us at all!

    1. Hey Amanda, they are having another one in March. I think it's a Spring wreath class. Maybe it's on their facebook page or website!
